About Dwarf Mondo Grass

The very unique Dwarf Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon japonicus ‘Nanus’) is a short evergreen perennial with tufted grass-like dark green leaves. This variety of grass is extremely controlled and will stay in between 2-3 inches tall which is great for making a clean uniform look. The dark green evergreen blades of this grass are roughly 1/8” inch wide. In early summer this grass will produce insignificant white flower spikes that will give way to blueberries in autumn. Dwarf Mondo grass is often used as ground cover, in between stepping stones or for border planting.

How to Space Your Dwarf Mondo Grass

For a seamless planting, plant your Dwarf Mondo Grass 5-6 inches apart. Space them 8+ inches for gaps between plants.

    5 stars !!!

  2. Dana McKinley (verified owner)

    Arrived well packaged and healthy. Bigger and more mature than I expected. Easy to plan and excited to see them grow.

  3. Tom F (verified owner)

    Bought the Dwarf Mondo Grass in 3″ pots to fill in between a stone pathway. Got them in 2 days. Excellent condition. Very strong root system.
    If I need more, I’ll definitely use this company again.

  4. Nancy (verified owner)

    Cute as a button. All 54 arrived healthy with plenty of moisture. Plants by Mail has been a excellent experience.

  5. Mark Wiggins (verified owner)

    Arrived one day early, still wet & healthy green…envy of my neighbors. Definitely not my last purchase from PBM!!!

  6. Nancy (verified owner)

    Every single plant in the 54 pack was alive and well even though it took longer to arrive than usual. I have purchased several different things from this company and it has been awesome for me.

  7. Jenny Russell (verified owner)

    They were packed well and doing fine. Ready for planting.

    First time buying from this company. Incredibly healthy plants with a thick root system. They were well packed and came quickly. I will be back for more.
